Look Inside - The Time of Jesus by Lois Rock; Illustrated by Lorenzo Orlandi

5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A fascinating flap book full of bustling scenes from the time of Jesus that will keep inquiring young minds busy. Detailed depictions of Bible history are enhanced by a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page. Brief text explains the setting of the picture, and references events and stories from Jesus' life. The captivating pictures and to-the-point text make this book especially useful for encouraging reluctant readers. The book covers the first Christmas, a synagogue and carpenter's workshop in Nazareth, fishing in Capernaum, farming and shepherding in the hills of Galilee, homes of the wealthy and everyday people, the temple in Jerusalem, the way of the cross, and the first Easter.

MY REVIEW -
Another great Children's book! Don't you just love lift-the-flap books? Well kids sure do and they will love this one.

First let me start by saying that this is very good quality - a beautiful hard cover book with heavy board pages, perfect for small hands. It is also a nice big size.

There is a lot to look at. Each page is filled with lots to see. It almost reminds me of the old Richard Scary books. This was so much fun to look at and lift each flap. I can't wait to share this one with the future grandchildren.

Thank you Kregel Publications for sending me this beautiful book for my honest review - another winner!
